Book Description Marg Publications, Mumbai, India, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Living Rock offers new perspectives into the fascinating world of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave sites in the western Deccan. From the 2nd century BCE to the 10th century CE, rock cut temples and monasteries appeared at various sites in the subcontinent - most notably across the western Deccan. Carved on the edge of the basaltic plateau, the cave sites were strategically placed near ancient trade routes and fertile land, showcasing architectural spaces designed for a variety of worship practices and monastic uses. With a wealth of material evidence, Living Rock presents elected case studies that explore fresh avenues of investigation. Contributions by archaeologists, art historians, historians and scholars of religion trace the cultural and religious phenomena associated with the development of these sites. Some proposed investigative models suggest new relationships between literary and visual evidence; others connect cave centres to religious and artistic contexts located outside the western Deccan, placing the rock-cut monuments in a wider cultural landscape. Printed Pages: 140 with numerous colour illustrations. Size: 23 x 29 Cm. Seller Inventory # 037690

Book Description Marg Publications, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: 1. Introduction/Pia Brancaccio. 2. What's in a name? Rethinking caves/Phyllis Granoff. 3. Early historic Junnar: archaeology and art/Vasant Shinde. 4. The King and the monastery: the Pandu Lena at Nashik/Himanshu Prabha Ray. 5. Guntupalle: the oldest rock-cut Buddhist monastery in the eastern Deccan/Akira Shimada. 6. Shakyabhikshus at the brazen glen: Mahayana reoccupation of an old monastery at Pitalkhora/Nicolas Morrissey. 7. Post-Vakataka monuments: The Legacy of Ajanta/Walter M. Spink. 8. Buddhist caves of the Deccan: art, religion and long-distance exchange in the 5th and 6th centuries/Pia Brancaccio. 9. Ellora cave 16 and the cult of the twelve jyotirlingas/Benjamin J. Fleming. 10. Relationships between art, architecture and devotional practices at Ellora/Lisa N. Owen. Index. From the 2nd century BCE to the 10th century CE, rock-cut temples and monasteries appeared at various sites in the subcontinent--most notably across the western Deccan. Carved on the edge of the basaltic plateau, the cave sites were strategically placed near ancient trade routes and fertile land, and they showcased a variety of architectural spaces for different worship practices and monastic uses. Living Rock Offers new perspectives into this fascinating world of cave temples. With a wealth of material evidence extant, it does not attempt a comprehensive survey of rock hewn temples, rather, it presents selected case studies that explore fresh avenues of investigation. The contributions by archaeologists art historians, historians and scholars of religion trace the cultural and religious phenomena associated with the development of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave sites in the western Deccan. Some investigative models proposed in this book suggest new relationships between literacy and visual evidence, others follow threads connecting cave centres to religious and artistic contexts located outside the western Deccan in an attempt to place the rock-cut monuments in a wider cultural landscape. This book thus touches on both the local and cross-regional dimensions of cave temples. It includes chapters discussing patronage at Nashik, archaeological evidence of a habitation site at Junnar and relationships between Hindu and Jain caves at Ellora. The articles on the Guntupalle caves in Andhra Pradesh on post-Vakataka art and on contacts between Ajanta and Gandhara demonstrate how an understanding of long distance exchange networks sheds new light on the western Deccan caves.
